Introduction to On Page SEO
The English term "On Page SEO" means the optimizations that we conduct on our site (On Page = On page) to get the content of our site be as "nice" as possible for search engine. We could say that by SEO "On Page", we try to "explain" to Google which is the purpose of our website, something very necessary because if we omit this explanation, or we do it incorrectly, Google may choose to qualify and position ourselves in some searches which we are not generally meant to it.
How Google indexes your pages?
Before the page come out as Google result, it must have been found and classified by their robots, automated programs that read, extract and archive the content of the pages. These robots relentlessly search the Internet, track all the links that are embedded on pages and which help to locate it, and visit new pages that are already indexed to see if they have any new content. It is very important that we make sure that these robots can find and analyze our website as easily as possible, to incorporate our content in its index. Robots indexed all the readable content of our pages (text, images, links, etc..) and store it in a giant database, where it is analyzed to determine the niche they belong and the relevance in it. Because robots cannot easily read the content that are created with Flash, Java or AJAX, so it is not advisable for Google SEO from the positioning point of view, use these technologies to serve content that we want to be indexed.
Choose a publication system
Blogger and Wordpress, free Content Management System
One of the first decisions we face when we launched a web page is the technology that we use to build and manage. Although we could roughly say that the system we use should not have a major impact on the SEO, the reality is that there are programs or services that make it much easier and are more prepared than others for this work. If you are comfortable editing HTML and CSS, you can build your site from the ground level and thus have full control over every aspect of On Page SEO. But not everyone has such knowledge, and there are many who still prefer to focus more on content, as in my case. If you belong to the latter group, there are basically two ways you can go, use a web service offered by a third party, or install a content management system for your own account hosted on a server.
